With the Mid-Autumn Festival fast approaching (it’s in the first week of October!), tis the season for mooncakes! And if you’re wondering where to get some, we have you covered! 😀
Even though we do not celebrate a particular festival, these days it’s such a privilege that we can still share in the culture and, of course, the food! Definitely one the best things about living in multi-racial Singapore right! Think back a few years ago and Halal mooncakes were a rarity. Thankfully, we’re lucky enough to not only have Halal options but a wide range to choose from for that matter!
We skipped our coverage last year but we’re back with our list!
Here’s our rundown of 10 Halal Mooncakes you can enjoy this Mid-Autumn Festival (in no particular order).
We start the list off with some mooncakes that are.. not exactly traditional but still look set to be big favourites nonetheless. I mean, how can anyone possibly resist ice-cream right! 😛
Swensen’s Sweet Medallion Mooncakes are a spin on traditional mooncakes with ice-cream fillings within chocolate casings which resemble the mooncakes we all love and enjoy. As an added bonus on top of the ice-cream, a “truffle yolk’ treasure lies within!
There are 4 flavours to choose from – Cookies N Cream Surprise, Durian Royale, Rocher Crunch and (the ever popular) Sticky Chewy Chocolate. Enjoy your favourite Swensen’s ice-cream flavours and enjoy that chocolate shell as you chomp down to get at that truffle yolk centre.
Swensen’s Sweet Medallion Mooncakes are priced at $48.80 for a box of 4 or $12.20 per piece.

2. Crowne Plaza Changi Airport
If we had to choose a winner for Best Packaging, Crowne Plaza Changi Airport would win hands down. A couple of years ago, their metal suitcase-resembling packaging was really a sight to behold and they’ve really outdone themselves this year with a sleek and very stylish orange case complete with leather luggage tag!
Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has both traditional Baked Mooncakes (White Lotus Paste woth Double Egg Yolk, White Lotus Paste with Single Egg Yolk and While Lotus Paste with Melon Seeds) and also Snow Skin Mooncakes (Salted Green Bean with Taro and Lychee Bits with White Lotus Paste) as well so take your pick!

Old Chang Kee’s Mooncakes are super cute! Their Mini Mooncakes have the unmistakable design that echoes their iconic curry puffs! But don’t worry – they don’t taste like curry puffs okay! LOL

8. Tung Lok
Lady at Esso: You wanna buy mooncakes? Got offer.
Me: Tung Lok Halal meh? I must have Halal one.
Lady at Esso: Ya Halal mah.
Me: *surprised face*
Actually I forgot that Tung Lok Group recently made a move to have their central kitchens certified Halal which I only associated to catering (especially since I enjoyed one of their sumptuous catering spreads at a recent event) but little did I realize that this also meant that certain products produced at these central kitchens could also be certified Halal. Case in point – mooncakes!
I saw 2 different boxes – the regular ones going for $61.80 and the bite-sized ones (pictured above) are $64.80 per box. Quite a number of interesting flavours too! But do take note that they have a lot of different types of mooncakes and it’s not yet verified that ALL are certified Halal (for some reason they are e not making it obvious) so be sure to check for the MUIS logo okay!
According to the brochure, you can get the mooncakes at several locations but I’ve seen them at almost all Esso petrol stations and Cheers stores!
9. Four Seasons Durian
They’re known for their durians so it’s only natural that their mooncakes also have durians right!
Four Seasons Durians presents their range of mooncakes which are every durian-lovers dream! They’ve got 4 different types – Mao Shan Wang Mooncakes, D24 Mooncakes and their mini versions too! Prices range from anywhere between $49.90 to $128.00. Drop by their outlets or order online!
This was one that one of our readers highlighted to us – specially for all you Tupperware fans! LOL
I know that Tupperware culture is really big overseas and I’m sure it has a pretty big following too here. Well, TUP.SG is your trusted Tupperware online store and they have a Sakura Mooncake Gift Set by Tupperware and it’s certified Halal!
I’m not sure where they get the mooncakes from but if you’re a fan of Tupperware AND mooncakes then this is definitely a good choice for you. In fact, it’s a great gift idea! East set is priced at $53.00 and consists of 2x Large Goody Box with Cariolier, 2x White Lotus Mooncakes, White Lotus Mooncakes with Yolk and a special gift box which doubles as a lantern too!
11. Swee Heng 1989 Classic
Another tip-off from our readers! Swee Heng 1989 Classic also has their own special range of Halal-certified Mooncakes this year!
Some pretty colourful ones from what we can see from their promotional poster and they have both traditional Baked mooncakes and also Snow Skin ones too! They have a special promotion where if you purchase any 4pcs of Large Mooncakes, you get a FREE $10 gift voucher!

13. Swiss Cottage Bakery
Here comes a recommendation from one of our readers!
Swiss Cottage Bakery has 10 different and delectable mooncakes for your to choose from – some classics and some new interesting flavours!
Lotus and Pandan Paste mooncakes are great but how about some Violet Harmony (Taro & sweet potato with O’mochi), Blue Danube (Blueberries with creamy mung bean cheese paste), Crimson Opera (Beetroot with cheese and creamy white chocolate), Oriental Pearl (Creamy white lotus teams up with macadamia and O’mochi) and many more!
